What I do

Since 1995 I have proudly provided original custom character design/ vis dev and Illustration services for a diverse range of needs, for an equally diverse range of industries and businesses, including marketing/ advertising, children's publishing, 2D design for animation and game development and comics. 
My work focus for the last 10 years has been Character design & Visual development for animation and gaming. Much of that work, unfortunately  cannot be posted here, due to NDAs. Sorry. 
There's a few samples below, but an update is underway that will provide a more vast sense of what I do. (Stay`tooned)
When it comes to working with my clients, I listen carefully and work hard to meet your specific needs in an innovative way that is bold, unique and attention grabbing!
- Any kind of work on spec basis. This is what I do for a living.
- I will design for animation but do not offer animation as a service.  
- I don't do porn. Not a prude. Just not my jam - Please don't ask.
Below I have included a few samples of some commercial work. Due to NDAs, most of the work I have done cannot be posted here.

So, whether you're a writer with great a story that needs pictures, or a studio that requires visual development and design work for a cartoon or game... 
Maybe you're a children's publisher in need of dynamic illustrations for a magazine or kids book. I look forward to the opportunity of working with you too!
